SportsFest remains our most popular tournament event; so why is that? Well, one of the main reasons is that it is such great value for money. The action packed itinerary includes professional coaching sessions and evenly matched matches. Plus you get the chance to visit the Nou Camp Stadium and Barcelona. All combined with a fun filled programme of evening entertainment.
The SportsFest base is directly on the beach in the more upscale Spanish resort of Platja d’Aro on the Mediterranean coast just north of Barcelona. It’s a fantastic location for a sports tournament. This is a very safe and attractive town that combines sport, culture and leisure in a natural setting, centred on a lovely seafront with impressive beaches and idyllic bays. The ease of access to the excellent local facilities and the opportunity for excursions to water parks, theme parks, Barcelona and the Nou Camp make this an ideal destination for school sports tours.
One of the main reasons for the success of the SportsFest Tournament series is the chance to be able to bring lots of different sports teams to the same event so your party can consist of football teams for both boys and girls, netball teams, hockey and rugby.
As far as we are concerned it really is the more the merrier!
